Thats a really cute belt! :-)
I'm having a hard time with photography as well. I brought a light box off of ebay which helps a little bit.

I understand about low light photography. I have edited your image. It isn't perfect but better. If you'd like to have it, I'd be most happy to send it to you. Not sure how to correspond confidentially.
